We all possess a gift. A gift that God can use to bless others. I cannot be so modest as to deny the gift God has made evident in my life. My gift is creative design. I have served as a Children Minister alongside my wife for over 20 years. During this time I have created some pretty amazing sets for Children’s Church, Vacation Bible School, church functions, and others. You can see some of my work HERE. I currently serve as an Associate Pastor and even though I have been inspired to write quite a few creative sermons, I have never considered myself a writer per se. It wasn’t until recently, after being encouraged by my precious wife, Maribel, that I decided to venture into the blogging world. Mari’s encouragement and praises have given me the confidence to write and share what has been stored in my heart for many years.
I love lighthouses. I collect them, have visited over a dozen, and plan to visit many more before I enter eternity. I even bought a Lighthouse Passport that is stamped at every lighthouse I visit. For years, I have been fascinated by their architectural design, but mostly by their purpose. My dream is to one day own a lighthouse or at least live in a house where my “man cave” is designed to resemble one.
Lighthouse Devotions is intended to reflect the peace, the strength, and the hope I experience in the presence of lighthouses. But these inspirations would be meaningless if they did not bring glory, honor, and praise to One who is the true beacon of the world, my savior Jesus Christ. I dedicate this blog to my wife and I sit here humbly asking God to use these inspirations to encourage other lighthouses (believers) to shine the light of Christ in a spiritually dark world.
I have also been encouraged to share my non-lighthouse related writings. Here is the LINK to my Words To Ponder blog.
